Este restaurante señorial ubicado en un edificio Art Noveau en plena Diagonal es un referente de aquella Barcelona clásica que ha sabido adaptarse a los tiempos. Sin perder su clase, su esencia y su inconfundible aura de antaño, La Dama ha reinventado su cocina y la ha adaptado a los gustos contemporáneos tras su reciente reapertura. Así pues, en su majestuoso comedor, acogedor y elegante, podemos disfrutar de propuestas que van desde una ensalada de quinoa y aguacate a unos gnocchi con ragú de pato y salvia, ostras y otras delicatessen.

Una carta para todos los gustos, elaborada con el máximo respeto a una materia prima de gran calidad, en que los pescados de lonja conviven con las carnes de vaca gallega o el carpaccio de ternera con chimichurri y rabanitos. Todo ello, en un hermoso comedor acristalado con vistas a la Diagonal, un lugar de excepción que reunió en su época a la burguesía catalana y aún conserva ese inconfundible toque de majestuosidad de tiempos pasados.


Tienen una propuesta llamada “Una degustación de nuestra barra del mar” imprescindible, compuesta de especialidades marineras.

    Had a wonderful evening in this gem in Barcelona. Beautiful restaurant with exquisite food. The building is fascinating and the staff are really helpful. Quite pricey.

    It’s just ok. Nothing special, for 30 eur fish dish, you could get it from Michelin star restaurant. Prices are way above the taste and quality. Same regarding cocktails.

    Great looking restaurant, shame there was a couple of cocktails on the menu they couldn’t make to start with as they didn’t have the ingredients. Starts everyone enjoyed there, main course steak very under cooked, tasted like it was a quality meat and had flavour. Every one else liked there. Soufflés for dessert really nice. Staff helpful and like the laid back but professional still. The best part of the restaurant by far is the building and decor. Would recommend this Resturant.

    Food was decent, but lacked flavor. We received the seafood salad and it was missing the lobster. Bill was sent to us 3 times before correct. We expect better. Did like the setting.

    Lovely venue in a Gaudi architecture inspired building. We we’re welcomed at the door and our reservation was ready. The decoration and the whole vibe of the place is very chilled and classy. Great wine selectio and a well selected menu. It was hard to choose from so many good options, so we decided to go for a tasting of 5 dishes. The winner was solomillo! AMAZING We stayed for drinks after and had a great time throughout.
